A few weeks ago the editor was taken
with a very severe cold that caused him
to be in a most miserable condition. It
was undoubtedly a bad case of la grippe
and recognizing it as dangerous he took
immediate steps to bring about a speedy
cure. From the advertisement of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy and the many
good recommendations included therein,
we concluded to make a first trial of the
medicine. To say that it was satisfac
tory in its results, is putting it very
mildly, indeed. It acted like magic and
the result was a speedy and permanent
cure. We have no hesitancy in recom
mending this excellent Cough Remedy
to anyone afflicted with a congh or cold
in any form. The Banner of Liberty,

William, or' as he is more familiarly
known, "Billy" Mansfield, the foreman
in the Times-Mountaineer office, left
thiB morning on the early train for Port
land, where he will take the train for
Cosmopolis, Wash., and Monday at 9
o'clock he will embark on the matri
monial sea.- At that time Miss Henri
etta Valene Owen, youngest daughter of
Hon. H. C. Owen, of Eugene, will be
come Mrs. Mansfield, and Billy, the un
tamed cayuse of the bunch grass hills,
will for the first time slip his head into
the matrimonial baiter. He ought to
have been lassoed and branded long ago,
but somehow The Dalles girls were un
able to get him in the corral and it re
mained for one of Eugene's bright-eyed
girls to gather him in off the range.
Billy is an all around good fellow, a good
man, a good printer, and will undoubt
edly make a good husband. We con
gratulate him on the happy event, feel
ing certain that once being broke to lead,
he will soon become bridal-wise.

BATTLE WITH A FIEND.
Four Women Attacked by an Unknown
Man in Colfax.
A dispatch from Colfax dated Sept.
29th, says :
At 11 o'clock last night four women
fought desperately witb an unknown
brute, who waB finally beaten off and es
caped in the darkness. The entire force
of the sheriff and marshal are searching
for the fiend, and. if caught, it is thought
he will be lynched.
Mrs. Mattie Smith, a widow, lives in
a cottage in the thickly built section ot
town witb her 14-year-old daughter,
Ollie. They were awakened by the at
tempt of a man to enter at a window
and screamed for help. Willian Colvin,
a neighbor, came to her call and found
two men on the sidewalk. They declared
they were not burglars, and offered to
accompany Mr. Colvin down town in
search of the police. They started with
him, but gave an excuse and dropped
off. A few minutes later a man ap
peared at a window, broke it and en
tered the house. The frightened women
ran to the back door, but, hearing a man
on the porch there, broke through the
window and fled to Mr. Colvin's house.
The brute ran after them, seized the
girl and choked her. The mother ran
to her daughter's rescue and wrested her
from the grasp of her asBailant, and the
two women Bucceeded in getting into
Mr. Colvin's Louse. Before the door
could be closed, the ruffian hurried him
self against it, and, although four
women inside were pushing against the
door, he succeeded in getting inside.
There a terrific struggle took place. The
fiend seized Mrs. Colvin and dragged her
out upon the porch. There he choked
her and threw himself upon her. Mrs.
Buck, Mrs. Colvin's mother, struck the
ruffian with a hammer, and at the third
blow he released his grip and fled in the
darkness, leaving his hat and shoes be
When the officers and neighbors ar
rived they found many eigns of the
fierce battle that had been fought. The
floor was strewn with torn clothing and
broken furniture, and the terrified
women were prostrated. Miss Smith
and Mrs. Colvin were suffering severely
from the choking they bad received.
They are confident they could identify
their assailant if he is caught.
